“Yes” I said as we were walking up to a mini net and some tennis rackets. I was very excited, because my class was going to have tennis coaching coached by Marcel, he was here to teach all of us how to play tennis, as it was his profession.
I have played tennis before, with my Dad and Brother, so I kind of knew what I was doing …. but still had to make sure that I listened, just to be sure because Marcel was teaching us how to grip the racket, and hit with a forehand. It was a bit tricky but I got there. Though my defeat over trickery made something mad, and the bad luck was forming faster and faster.
Room 17 was listening attentively as Marcel said “Okay know everybody find a partner and we are going to play a little game that will help your tennis skills” We all listened. I was with Brooklyn my best friend. I thought that she would be very easy to get out and drop the ball, forgetting that she had been playing tennis for 2 years now. Of coarse I lost and looked like I couldn’t hit the ball but I got over it, though at the time, it was so embarrassing.
I was getting better and better and by the start of the second activity I was sure my luck would come again. In my group and still very excited about my luck, I saw what we were about to do. We had to have a rally with people in our group that we were placed in, one by one. Who ever got the other person out was the King or Queen until he or she was beaten. I thought that I would never be Queen, but to my surprise I was TWICE. I liked this part the best!
I had fun at tennis coaching but was nackered at the end. It was a bit hard and I can’t wait till next time. Lets see if I improve.
